Meditation on a Kiss

The kiss was simple
It passed quickly from
sweet to soft to warm
slowly, taking each other in.

As it deepened
a lifetime of desire
danced precariously
where two lovers meet.

Eyes open, pupils wide,
hearts race
This perfervid kiss could
launch a thousand armies
or inaugurate a
new epoch of peace.

It is the very essence of passion:
distilled,
pure,
concentrated.
